    We shall see on Sunday...or maybe next Sunday. One of two things are going on:

    1) He is not feeling any better, and is going to a specialist to say "Hey, Doc, what is up? I should be out there after 3 weeks of taking it easy.."

    or...

    2) "Hey, Doc, I feel great! Can you give me one last check up and then call Coach and tell him I am good to go! He needs to hear it from a specialist!"

    Money is just falling off his free agent table with every week he misses and every week the other guys get it done without him.

    You don't go to see a specialist to get cleared for play. The team doctor(s) can clear you. This is NOT good news.

    He has 3 entire weeks off.... (don't really 'need' him vs JAX) ((then bye))

    If he can't suit up by then... who knows. You'd think he would be a goo after 3 more weeks though....? right??

    and I still think a Team like Washington would throw some big $$$ at him.
    God knows Washington will NOT be getting any top WR in the next few draft classes thats for sure.

    Going to see a specialist is NEVER a good sign. I hope it's not the case, but the groin is probably in more bad shape then initially thought. I think he should just take it easy for at least two more weeks.

    Definitely bad news.
    Right, we can beat Jacksonville this week with Ivo taking Jennings roster spot.
    Arizona has a sound defense, but they can't score. We could potentially have back-to-back games where our defense doesn't allow a touchdown.
    Then the bye.

    So this guy should get 3+ more weeks to rest & heal completely.

    Does he have a complete "tear" of the groin?

    Lol thx. Bet I would drop less passes than a certain TE. Not really confident in my 40 being NFL fast tho...

    I don't know what to think about this and Jennings this year. He can't stay on the field, he is doing alot of commercials and he is in a big free agent year. I think someone is listening to his agent far more than he should. If he is...it is not working out for him. If he doesn't start playing then no one will be paying.

    i think it's a complete tear, which will require at least four more weeks to heal...hopefully not tho. I played wr in college and it's no joke trying to run, cut, plant, etc with a bum groin.

    No one knows that more than Jennings and his agent. It's obviously in Jennings' best interest to get back on the field ASAP as close to 100% as he can be. Since the day he was drafted, nothing regarding anything he's ever said or done leads me to believe he isn't playing because he's listening to his agent. IMO it makes sense to bring Jennings after the bye week.

    I think this makes sense too. Teams have to get used to playing us without him. When he comes back, he'll add another dimension that teams will again have to readjust to when playing us, potentially giving us an advantage. I hate to see him out for so long, but I think there are ways to turn this in our favor...

    Rodgers stated he's in sync with the receivers right now, and the stats show it. I don't see any reason to rush Jennings at all if ever now. You put him in the mix with a bum groin that chemistry is going to suffer. Right now we don't need that especially when NFL.com is calling the puke Bears the class of the NFC. With every win they get we need to step up and ultimately destroy them in December.

    ugh they're not even that good...if the sorry lions held on to the ball they would have won the game but they turned the ball over like three times in the red zone and once on the goaline. They take care of the ball they win. The Bears have a good defense but Stafford isn't Rodgers.

    At best Jennings seeing a specialist is just a sign that it's not healing as quick or as well as he would prefer. At worst it means that things are going downhill. My guess is that it's more the former. Everyone hit the nail on the head above regarding Jennings FA money. If you're in the "we-need-to-keep-Jennings-a-Packer" camp, then this is great news because it's reducing his outside value. Personally I think that it would take a major injury to get his value in line with something that Green Bay could realistically act upon to resign him.

    Agree on all points with Guapo. Still, I don't see that it makes any sense to play him this week. Give him two more weeks and hopefully he can play EFFECTIVELY after the bye.

    Bingo. And here's another thing: We still have Donald there ready for some action. And I saw Jarrett Boykin was dressed last game as well, and he looked great in preseason. He reminded me of the blossoming I saw of Victor Cruz 2 pre-seasons ago. Easy there...... but still, we're deep, and they're in synch (NSYNC)..... so let Jennings groin get ONE HUNDRED percent. Not 98 or 99.

    Well a bum groin will effect the chemistry of most players if not all. And whoever said Driver...c'mon man!:rolleyes:

    Love Donald! And if we need a 4th WR in the next few games without Jennings there, I'm more than comfortable with Driver being that guy.

    Anyone else see a #4 WR somewhere else they'd trust more than DD?

    Then why has he seeen so few snaps even with Jennings being out? Doesn't seem like the coaching staff has much.

    The breakdown in pass protection when they go 4 wide is probably why. There are always extra blockers in whether it be Kuhn or Crabtree. I think they are predominately going 2 or 3 wide with a TE or FB on most plays. If the line was able to win almost all 1 on 1 battles and not require extra help then you would be seeing more of DD.

    Exactly, we haven't been going 4-wide as much this season from my recollections (stats anyone?). That third receiver is clearly Cobb right now with Driver and Boykin fighting for scraps.
